One of the key inspirations behind the Vavavoom big hair is the desire for attention and admiration. During the 1950s, Hollywood actresses such as Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield and Brigitte Bardot were not only popular for their acting skills but also for their stunning looks and stylish hairdos. They wanted to stand out and be the center of attention, and one way they achieved this was by sporting shiny, voluminous hair.

The Magnificent Volume Set creates instant body and volume for an effortless, lasting look. Imagine the women in the paintings with long, tousled, flowing wavy hair which emphasized natural beauty. Appreciate the beauty of long voluminous hair Renaissance painters admired by re-creating this year’s Vavavoom using the Magnificent Volume set:

  1. Start with clean hair and apply the Signature Foundation, the perfect base for each look, the Argan Moisturizing Elixir mixed with the Leave-in Conditioning Spray.

  2. Next, apply Volume Mousse Strong. And dry the hair using the Professional Blowdryer while wrapping sections around a brush for a smooth and sleek look.

  3. Follow by spraying the Thermal Protection Spray generously and rough dry the hair by using the cool-setting of the blowdryer.

  4. Create volume by curling with a 25mm curling wand from ends to mid-length. And continue to curl throughout the whole head and use pins to hold each curl in place while it cools.

  5. Brush each curl separately with the All-Purpose Spa Brush. Then build up the curls by gently teasing with fingers using Texturizing Volume Spray

  6. Finish with Texturizing Volume Spray & Session Spray Medium to style and hold the hair in place.
